Benchley/Weinberger is a dynamic, high-performing, California Distinguished School with a focus on achievement through communication. Our goal is for all children to develop a passion for learning by providing a challenging curriculum and teaching high-level communication skills across all content areas by way of technology, collaborative conversation, project-based learning, and the arts. Children experience rigorous, common core standards-based lessons, specifically designed to meet the needs of every student.

Benchley-Weinberger offers a schoowide GATE program to all students. Our ethnic diversity promotes a positive awareness and understanding of many cultures by way of our “School with Heart” (c. 2012) program, calling upon our entire learning community to honor all people. By signing our “Heart” contract, all stakeholders commit to: practicing respect, speaking up for themselves and others, advocating for their own learning, positively resolving conflict, remaining curious, and being of service to their school and their community. Our Panda Pal program matches older and younger students for further communication opportunities, leadership roles, and social skills building.
